Account of Kocour’s experiences on Mount McKinley in 1992 when teams were lashed by the most severe storm on record - 110 mph winds, -47 degrees. Eleven people died in this tragic season. This is one of the few books to describe a contemporary climb on this mountain. She discusses gear, the daily routine of climbing the West Buttress, and what it takes to be part of a team with the accompanying interpersonal issues and stresses created by the environment.
